The political-military escalation of the 1960s in Southeast Asia has generated one of the longest and most complex conflicts in recent History. The United States supported the South Vietnam Government against the North Vietnamese regular troops flanked by the People's Liberation Armed Forces, commonly knows as Vietcong. The ground war started on 1965 and ended only ten years later with the fall of Saigon of the evacuation of the latest American soldiers.
The long years of war, starting with an aerial campaign of bombing on North Vietnam, were characterized by clashes and fighting in tough rural environments with vegetation and villages that provided ideal conditions for the guerrilla war. Unfortunately a huge number of civilians were involved in the war and in the military operations. The American military supremacy, which saw the massive use of helicopters and armored vehicles, was counterbalanced by the effective North Vietnamese and Vietcong tactics.
